Silhouettes, walking lines, wire and voices …

We’re also thinking about how and if we can include ourselves on the graffiti art works. Our starting point was to create our silhouettes, sitting still then making contrasting pieces. So, we have the silhouettes where do we take them now? Someone in the room, Wendy, suggested taking the line for a walk, this is just what we did. Armed with paper and bold felt pens we drew self-portraits without taking the pen off the paper, we tried this several times on paper and also on foam board to create an embossed line.

Next step, to lift the line off the paper and make a self-portrait in wire. Tricky to start with but achievable. This is us thinking out loud together. Somewhere in this walking, talking and wire work Brian mentioned pilgrims, which prompted Chris to burst into ‘Who would true valour see … to be a pilgrim’ a hymn credited to John Bunyan (1628-1688).

This has given us something to think about over the next week. Your homework is: how to incorporate ourselves in the work? what do we think about the hymn? Wendy’s talking with Squirl about stencils!
